Democrats call for Presidential bake sale

I have no idea why this article is headlined Democrats Pledge to Restrain Spending because the story talks only of increasing spending, raising taxes, and apparently telling President Bush to fund the war himself. Same old Democrats it seems.

Determined to banish their old tax-and-spend image, Democrats want to shrink the federal deficit, preserve tax cuts for the middle class and challenge the president to raise money for the Iraq war when they take control of Congress next week. But it won't be easy.

The incoming Democratic chairmen of the House and Senate Budget committees said they plan to honor a campaign promise to devote billions of additional dollars a year to homeland security and education. And they reiterated a commitment not to cut off funding for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

RW,

I find it hard to believe that Dem Senator Conrad would say that the war was the President's policy and he should pay for it. Guess he forgot that almost all the Democrats voted for the war. He doesn't bother with details, just knock the president.

Did you notice over at Wootens, the blogger Barbara just got after Dio for using another ID? He is *Educator* now. Barbara said it wasn't good for discussion.( Not only that, it gets obnoxious.) What do you think of the source being a white collar facility south of Atlanta? Remember Dio implied that he knew more about *criminal* law? Maybe that is too far fetched but something is really out of sync with him.
 
Dusty,

Would that be the facility that once housed Al Capone?

Barbara beat me to it calling out Dio. I think she's just about passed finch for name changes and multiple ID's by now.
 
RW,

I apologize for telling you what you had just posted. When I went back to read the blog, there you were. Oops! Now crackpot Peter is posting the old hate Bush stuff. Yuk! And Jeff thinks Hitler didn't murder anybody. ohh

Al Capone might have been over "there". I think if you have much money and education they send you there. Maybe Milledgeville would be a better guess for Dio.
 
Dusty,

The way that posting delay is over there you probably didn't see it for a while. My comment says it's five minutes after hers, but it didn't show up for over twenty minutes.
 
Dusty:

I saw that slip by Dio. I also saw the feigned exit of several posters at Wooten's yesterday.

I don't think any of them have gone anywhere. They're just using different names now. I also suspect that there are not as many of them as they would have us believe.

When they can't take the heat, they just change their names. It really does interfere with the opportunity for discussion when the initial approach is preceded by "Who in the heck am I talking to?"

Huge dropped in at ml's to let the crew know that he had paid a rare visit to Wooten's and found it to be most civil and absent of name-calling for the most part. I guess he's feeling pretty cocky. Everybody is behaving but him.

Just in case you're all wondering about how I responded to BBQ. I think he went for the shock & awe. Didn't want to reward his bad behavior.
 
@@,

You did some good posting today. Working with special children gives you better insight than most people. That and your kind heart.

I was not so kind today. That Peter is so rabid. He makes me angry finding fault with everything, 'specially Bush. Well, I have said my piece about all that.

BD had a link to Rush's page but I am not a member and didn't join and open it. She said it was about lying. Wanted to read it. Oh well.

Hope you are enjoying your company. Nothing like holiday fun.(I'm so lazy I haven't removed my Christmas decorations. Maybe just leave them for next year!! Nawww.)
 
@@,

I think shock and awe is normal behavior for WTFBBQ.

What is particularly objectionable is that he spouts off about some subjects he doesn't know the first thing about - which is particularly dangerous since he is recommending extreme measures as cure-alls.

I also find it somewhat bizarre that he recommends government free rides to all children #1 and 2, but doesn't want to give it to those who truly cannot help themselves - which in my book is the one time it does makes sense to be helping with government assistance.
 
Dusty,

I forgot that while I can read the link because I have those extra special cookies, people who aren't members can't read it.

It included a 1994 letter from Senator, many of the Dems like Carl Levin, to President Clinton insisting that they take military action against Saddam Hussein for his WMDs.

I could try to Google it and find other sources...
 
Buy Danish,

Is this the letter you're looking for?
 
Buy Danish,

Thanks for the link review. Sounds like the Democrats didn't trust Saddam as far back as '94. Those wild and wooly liberals today wouldn't even believe it.

That Peter is a real pain. He makes even Dio look better. Well, not really. Nobody can do that.

I have lots to do tomorrow so maybe I will stay out of trouble. Less blogging in other words.

Oh RW,

I see your message. Let me go read it.
 
Dusty,

Make that an October 9, 1998 letter from the Armed Services Committee to the White House, which was occupied by you know who.

Here's a snippet -

The letter concludes: "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." You can see who signed the letter in the attacked copy, but among them are the following Senate Democrats: Levin, Lieberman, Lautenberg, Dodd, Kerrey, Feinstein, Mikulski, Daschle, Breaux, Johnson, Inouye, Landrieu, Ford and Kerry.

He read the letter.

On December 16, 1998, Bill Clinton ordered a strike "to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs, and its military capacity to threaten their neighbors. Their purpose is to protect the national interests of the United States..." February 17, 1998, Bill Clinton: "Saddam's son-in-law and the chief organizer of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program, defected to Jordan." Here are just some of the things this defection forced Iraq to admit, as cited by Clinton: "[A]n offensive biological warfare capability, notably 5,000 gallons of botulinum...2,000 gallons of anthrax, 25 biological-filled scud warheads, and 157 aerial bombs."

I hate rearguing the war, but the fact is that if Bush lied, so did everyone else and when Jim D and Peter and the rest of them perpetuate these lies they are harming our nation's security.

Goodnight!
 
RW,

That's it! And I even had the date wrong in my first post to Dusty.

I have airport duty again tomorrow so I need to get ready to ...sleep again!
 
RW and BD,

That makes it so plain that Congress was much concerned about wmd in Iraq as far back as 1998. They were also suggesting military action. Very helpful to see it in official form.

Wonder what excuse those crazy liberals like Peter would make of that? They wouldn't pay any attention. Just keep right on sqawking and accusing.

I do not believe that Bush decisions have all been right. But to call him a liar with other accusations is too much. Oh well. I count my blessings. Kerry is not president.
 
Buy Danish,

I won't wish you a happy flight this time. Just good traffic times on the airport trip.

Good night...
 
Goodnight BD!
 
RW,

It is getting late. Don't think I will have good dreams. Saw a study of Nancy Pelosi on Lehrer News Hour. I think it was David Brooks hoping that she could pull Congress together as a team. She doesn't seem the type to me. (I am trying to get over TOTAL dislike for the woman.)

Always appreciate your help in gathering the true facts. And so fast...wow.

Say "hi" to Honu and the eager beavers for me. ( oooooo that eager beaver bit is so OLD).

G'nite, RW
 
Goodnight Dusty!

Hopefully the Senate or Bush's veto pen will keep Pelosi from doing too much damage.
 
RW:

I keep forgetting to comment on your topic.

Come on now, let's give the dems credit for the abilities they've earned over time.

They're baking "cow pies", "donkey doughnuts". It'll be covered.

Let's wait and see how they "doo"?

Exiting with my buns (5 lbs each).

(Insert frowny face here) I'm fasting.
 
@@,

If we promise to not let Honu say "emoticon" again, will it help any?
 
Emoticon. Emoticon. Emoticon. Emoticon.

Phooey on you, RW.

I like that excuse, @@ -- I keep "forgetting" to click on the Billy Jeff links, too. . .

@@ -- here's the rule on visiting the beach. At the beach, clothes you wear tend to be more loose-fitting than normal everyday wear. So when you come back and put on winter duds, which are more form fitting, you just THINK you've gained weight.

You didn't, it's the make of the outfit, so you look just fine :-.)
 
Honu,

Isn't there some little symbol you could have used for that outburst?

Oh and @@, the scales need time to readjust from the latent sand and salt you may have introduced into them, so don't pay attention to that either.
